PHOENIX — Ramon Bueno was found guilty on multiple charges after the October 2014 shooting of an Arizona Department of Public Safety trooper.

Maricopa County Superior Court tweeted Thursday that the jury was hung on an attempted murder charge, however, he was found guilty on "all other counts."

Bueno was found guilty on varying different charges, including counts of aggravated assault, drive-by shooting, and threatening and intimidating.

Trooper James Casey was blindsided by a bullet as he was taking information from a passenger during a traffic stop near McDowell Road and Interstate 17. Bueno was a passenger in the backseat of the stopped vehicle at the time.

The vehicle Bueno was in was pulled over for dark window tint.

Bueno and an accomplice were arrested in west Phoenix after a week-long manhunt.
